Use a Large Die

Hello friends! 
I am popping in with a quick post about this very ornate and detailed die from Spellbinders.

This die measures 4.15 x 7.10 in. and is meant to for creating a Gatefold card.
It is more than plenty to cover entire card front. However, I decided to create a regular card with this large die. I took an easy way out and came up with a simple design.


I cut down the doily-like die cut and added a strip of foil. As usual, my low-tech foiling works like a charm! 
The sentiment is from

For the butterfly, it was part of the embellishment from February 2017 Card Kit.
 This gorgeous metal die does it all.

Lastly, I want to mention that Kit and Caboodle is still available for purchase----> here

Talk about intricate...that die is incredible. Love the way you used it, too. Looks lovely over the green cardstock. Your touches of silver simply enhance it's beauty.

Gorgeous card using these dies.

Using the die as a doily is a good option and let's you have options as to how you can use the Spellbinder die.
Very pretty card. I am in agreement with you on low tech foiling. I Iike to use foil as an accent, not The whole focus of a card.
